Halal winners at the Asian Curry Awards 2019
A number of Halal-friendly businesses triumphed at the 9th Asian Curry Awards yesterday in London’s Mayfair.
Leading restaurateurs, chefs, experts and dignatories came together at the luxury hotel, Grosvenor House, to celebrate the country’s favourite dish.
The annual event’s guest of honour was Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who while “delighted to speak at the Asian Curry Award” added: “London will always be open to food, talent and influences from around the world – that’s why I’m calling on the Government to put in place a migration system that ensures these businesses can flourish and thrive.”
Although a complete list of the winners is still to be published, Spice Village continued its winning ways by securing the Event Caterer of the Year award having last year won the Best Asian Restaurant Chain of the Year.
The Raj in Kettering, which enjoys an impressive 4.5/5 rating on Trip Advisor, was recognised as the Best Asian Restaurant in the East Midlands.
Thali Ho in Surbiton also repeated its success from last, when it was awarded The Best Indian Restaurant in the London Suburbs, by being recognised as Asian Restaurant of the Year in the same region.
In fact, the owners of Thali Ho not only won a second award with Rivaaz in Lymington winning Best Indian Restaurant in the South Coast of England, but co-owner Shahin Malek was voted Best Maître D’ in the whole of England.
Tamashah in Crawley, which earlier this year won the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards’ Best Restaurant in its region, this time won Asian Restaurant of the Year award in the South East of England.
